7.4 cu. ft. Capacity Get plenty of room to dry the large loads you washed in the matching front load washer. This 7.4 cu. ft. dryer easily handles bulky items like comforters and sleeping bags.

ENERGY STAR® Certified ENERGY STAR® certified models exceed government standards to help conserve natural resources and save money on your utility bills.

Intuitive Controls Let the dryer guide you to the right cycle combinations or customize up to 36 of your own to get the right type of fabric care for whatever you're drying.

Wrinkle Shield™ Plus Option with Steam Help keep wrinkles from setting into clean, dry fabrics. The Wrinkle Shield™ Plus option with Steam uses tumbling and steam for up to 150 minutes after the cycle ends or until you open the dryer door for improved wrinkle-fighting performance.

Steam Refresh Cycle Release wrinkles and reduce odors with the Steam Refresh cycle. It uses water and heat to get clothes ready to wear without rewashing.

Sanitize Cycle The Sanitize cycle provides care for your clothes in the dryer while eliminating 99.9% of common household bacteria.

Static Reduce Option Help decrease static with the Static Reduce option, which combines a spray of mist with tumbling after the load is dry.

EcoBoost™ Option Use less energy while getting great drying performance with the EcoBoost™ option. This option saves energy by using less heat and an extended cycle time.

Quad Baffles Four baffles tumble clothes in a randomized pattern, allowing items to open up freely. This helps increase the effectiveness of the dryer for small loads.

Stainless Steel Dryer Drum Clothes are gently cradled as they tumble around the smooth surface of this drum's stainless steel construction.

Dryer Rack Place unique or delicate items like sweaters, pillows, hats and tennis shoes on the Dryer Rack for tumble-free drying. This rack attaches inside the drum and stays in one place throughout the cycle. Rack ships separately after online product registration.

Closet-Depth Fit Get a space-saving design with closet-depth fit that allows for more flexible installation in your laundry space.

Laundry Pedestals Raise your dryer for easier loading and unloading. Optional laundry pedestals also provide space-saving storage for detergent, dryer sheets and other supplies.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

The tone when the cycle is finished is weak - can only hear it near the dryer! My 10 year old Whirlpool dryer was loud.

Bad quality control. Broken upon delivery.

Dissatisfied Customer#2 8/16/2019

Washer/dryer combo was delivered while i was at work. Upon inspection when i got home, i found the plastic piece inside the dryer is cracked and sticking out. I wouldnt even try to run a load as i very sure that it will just ruin my clothes.

Worst dryer we have ever owned!

Kenneth1234567 7/30/2019

We purchased this lemon in June 2019. The only way we can dry our clothing is by using the Timed Dry setting on How To Dry. All the other functions in the How To Dry setting do not dry the clothes. example #1 if i set the dryer at What To Dry - Towels, the dryer started at 1:36 and by 1:24 it states it is cooling down, turning off 1:21. The dryer has turned off after 15 minutes and the towels are soaking wet! 8 towels can never dry in 15 minutes! example #2 if I set the dryer at What To Dry - Regular How To Dry Normal the dryer will turn off after 10 -12 minutes. The dryer can be full or half full and the clothes never dry! Every setting I set it at the dryer turns off well in advance of the stated time and it is always wet. It could be half full or loaded! We have had four service calls: Service call #1 - we were told to stop using dryer sheets because it throws off the sensor and to change the dryer vent. Repair man suggested we use the timed dry only! I stated that isn't what we paid for. I stopped using dryer sheets and changed the vent but the problems continue. Service call #2 - repair man said two internal parts were not communicating with each other so he would order them and have them sent to our house. He said they were not in stock so it would take a couple of weeks. Service call #3 - repair man replaced the two parts and said to call if it still malfunctioned. I asked if this pattern continued what would occur. He stated that the next time he would contact Whirlpool Tech and if nothing could be done it would be "swapped out". The service man placed numerous wet rags into the dryer and asked us to check when done. We did and the rags were still wet. Service call #4 - The service man called Whirlpool Tech and the Tech stated it was ". . working as designed". The service man stated we can always put the clothing at timed dry. We paid extra money for extra features and the only option that works is Timed Dry! We contacted Whirlpool customer service and they said ". . . sorry but we repair and not replace and Tech said it is working as designed." What do we do now?

EDK1954 7/5/2019

I bought this dryer along with the matching washer and I love it. Has plenty of cycles to choose from and seems to dry very well. I only wish that it had a buzzer to let you know when the cycle has finished with the drying.

Blows my mind!

Amy Jude 6/13/2019

Let's be clear, my dryer was at least 15 years old. It was obviously time to upgrade! This dryer is AMAZING!!! I paired it with a 5.0 Washer and the size works perfectly. If i put a king size down comforter in by itself, it dries in less than an hour. If I put it in with a comforter, complete set of sheets and some towels, I do need to shuffle the positioning at about an hour, and then within 45 minutes, everything is ready to go! In my old dryer, a down comforter alone would take 4 cycles to dry. The steam cycles are what REALLY sell this model! I've left clothes in the dryer for days thinking they would be a nightmare to iron. No longer! I quickly run the steam cycle and all the wrinkles magically disappear. My ironing has almost been eliminated! This was my choice when ordering, but after 5 days, I realized I should have purchased the smart dryer in this model. I have a very old 4 story house and with the washer/dryer in the basement and bedrooms on the top floor, it would have been a dream to go to my app, hit refresh and then run down to grab a ready load. However, I purchased this model and must give it 5 stars for being exactly what it was supposed to be and MORE than I could have imagined!

too new

jpert 4/9/2019

I had this dryer delivered with a new washer 4/08/2019. They are coming back today to give me another dryer. When I turned on the dryer there was a loud noise during the cycle it sounded like there was a sneaker in the dryer. No questions asked they are bringing me a new dryer. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
